Well done Airbus! That was a great air show for them. Now let's get these built.Jump to post
Well done Boeing! That was a great air show for them.Jump to post
The order of the show right there. Only to secure A330 neo production which is ramping down at present.

I think they both took delivery the same day? So far I've seen 6 ACF'S for easyJet. They seem to be pushing them through quite quick for now. I don't think that's correct, in fact you seem to be completely wrong about that: It's not used on the Airbus prototypes or the aircraft delivered to LH, VX, ...Jump to post
Surely ATC would of notified the crew they had smoke coming from the R/H main gear which would then cause the crew to check instruments etc. I would also imagine that anti skid warning from that axle tooJump to post

Why are you teasing us about a teaser video to which you do not link?
Saw components for ANZ's first A321 Neo this week. I imagine FAL should start just before or straight after summer shut down.Jump to post
The first Beluga XL is scheduled to leave the paint shop on the 26th of June. That why they where washing it last week. https://farm2.static.flickr.com/1729/28911142148_735b8e4ded_b.jpg https://hiveminer.com/Tags/beluga%2Cxl They were checking for water leaks hahaJump to post

It hasn't started final assembly yet as far as I know. All Indigo frames I have seen are A320's so far. Do you have an MSN for It? I believe it is due this year however. Pug Does anyone have any info on the first A321 for Indigo Airlines? Some one I know mention it was in final assembly. Is this tru...Jump to post
Now the neo wings are very different from the ceo wings.Jump to post
There is no difference in the wings. All wings that roll off the line since circa 2013 are capable of being fitted with sharklets even if the wingtip fences have been fitted iirc.Jump to post
There is loads of ceo's still on order. We're manufacturing around 4 every week roughly at present. In fact, very recently there was a set of wings manufactured which had the old wingtip fences fitted instead of sharklets.Jump to post
That's a very good example of the differences between the A321 models now available, soon to be the only option available. EasyJet is the airline with the most in production so far although I don't think they have finished build at the FAL yet.Jump to post
A311, A313, A315 The A3 part is Airbus heritage so why not keep it? The 1 represents 1 Aisle (yes I realise that the A320 doesn't have 2 aisles,) Or maybe single class or something etc The second 1, 3 or 5 (if built) represents the CS family orientation. At the end of the day, we could come up with ...Jump to post
Ok, so 2 A321's for EasyJet are in the production phase (should start FAL soon ) and I think they are taking 5 this year, possibly more
Also, the first A320 Neo ACJ ( corporate jet) will start assembly in the coming months. All frames will be assembled at Hamburg.
The A330 tail looks either sized wrong forxthe surface area, or the livery was upside down. The small maroon patches were on the wrong side of the blue rectangles.
Hard to say without better photo's of the A330
This photo does show awfully a lot of damage even to the wing. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DbBrG9_XUAYBEOh.jpg That window frame is definitely distorted on the lower aft edge on the silver frame. But it also looks like it is forced outwards, possibly from the body of the deceased. Could the glass h...Jump to post
Interestingly, recently I've noticed that new A320 neo's were being manufactured without the static wicks on the trailing edge of the fairings. At first, we thought it was a mod for the neo's, but even ceo's don't have them on the fairings anymore. The ones fitted to the ailerons are still present....Jump to post

The first A321 Neo (A321-251NX) for EasyJet will be starting assembly soon. The aircraft is also the next A321 ACF customer, delivery due for summer this year.Jump to post
Note there is no non-normal procedure for inflight wing folding. All non-normals are for ground operations. Assuming there is one, I would expect it would have to wait until the test frames are flying to identify the conditions and effects. Well, Boeing have stated they will automatically fold up w...Jump to post
My misunderstanding of the issue, I assumed the seal was further back in the engine. It all makes sense now.
Thank you all.
Ok, so the questions from that article, which I think is highly over exaggerated btw, 1, does an IFSD cause extreme vibrations in the cabin? If so why? The engine should just be windmilling. 2, what caused the 'loud bang' a compressor stall? 3, when the knife edge seal fails, what effect does this h...Jump to post
Yes! Come on Pratt, let's go!Jump to post
The real question is what causes the IFSD? Is it a software issue (wasn't the software changed with the mod or was that just the rotor bowing issue) or is it a mechanical issue, whether it be an evolution of an existing problem or a new issue.
Either way, a lot of neo's are flowing down the lines.
The new scheme will now go to an all white top and bottom wing, including fairings too. They aren't the first customer to request this scheme and probably won't be the last either. While, as someone pointed out, long-gone Ansett had it, no other airline (maybe a few small exotics I don´t know of as...Jump to post
Lufthansa used to adopt a white/grey colour scheme on the wings where the split used to follow the centre line of the leading and trailing edge of the wing. The new scheme will now go to an all white top and bottom wing, including fairings too. They aren't the first customer to request this scheme a...Jump to post
I hope that is not the case because that sounds like Boeing will close the parts they don't control and what is to stop Boeing moving the fal/jobs to the U.S.?
Surely that is a very desperate move ?
Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!!!!!!!! Get in BombardierJump to post
A lot of damage to that aircraft. 2 new engines/pylon(s), new landing gear (I imagine they will replace them all), and new d-nose sections and L/E slats on the right wing, plus T/E flaps and fairings too. Doable?? Absolutely, cost effective? Maybe not. I have no idea on aircraft valuations.Jump to post
Also a question; does someone know how many plain painting facilities world wide are suitable for the A380? There are two in Hamburg. I don't know if Toulouse has some, on maps I count two or three. Have MRO companies build A380 painting facilities and hangars? I think Emirates are building their o...Jump to post
I don't believe it will venture to Mobile under normal ops, but who knows, if a emergency situation arose. I believe the main purpose of the Beluga XL is to carry 2 A350 wings at the same time, as opposed to a single wing the current Beluga can carry The main purpose is to take over from the older ...Jump to post
